Has the US Given Israel a Green Light To Attack Syria?
Is Washington giving Israel a green light to attack Syria as a consolation prize for delaying an attack against Iran? Sending Syria into turmoil would eliminate the most important supporter of the Palestinians resistance, cut off Hezbullah, leave it vulnerable to a final assault, and isolate Iran.

For Egypt, Bread Is As Important As Freedom
Now that the initial shock over Egypt's uprising has subsided, powerful special interests here in the United States are preparing to throw their support behind VP Suleiman or even continuation of President Mubarak's rule. The Israel lobby, the most powerful in Washington, is trumpeting exaggerated fears, fanned by neoconservatives and Israel, that Egypt is about to turn into a second Iran.

BIG TROUBLE IN TUNISIA FOR AMERICA'S MIDEAST RAJ
The US and France have always hailed Tunisia as a poster-boy for "moderation, stability, and democracy." Translation: 1. moderation: following orders from Washington and making nice to Israel; 2. stability: crushing all opposition, particularly Islamist-oriented parties, muzzling the media, and paving the way for US business; 3. democracy: holding fake elections every few years.

Global economies must brace for continuing tough times as governments adjust
(1 comments) The United States, 25% of the global economy, can't rein in its spending or cut debt. President George W. Bush created the biggest deficit in U.S. peacetime history. Now, President Barack Obama is making matters worse by piling on more unsustainable debt.

Egypt a ticking time bomb: The Arab world's leading nation has become a political and cultural backwater
(1 comments) After three decades under Mubarak, Egypt has become a political and cultural backwater. In a telling incident, Mubarak recently flew to Germany for gall bladder and colon surgery. After billions in U.S. aid, Mubarak could not even trust a local hospital in the Arab world's leading nation.

Reining in U.S. rent-a-Rambos
(4 comments) The U.S. brands all al-Qaida suspects and Taliban "illegal combatants," denying them due process of law and the Geneva Convention's prisoner protections. It's OK to murder and torture such "terrorists," says Washington. What, then, about the army of U.S. mercenary Rambos that are running amok, who wear no uniform, kill at will and have no legal oversight?

Wars sending U.S. into ruin: Obama the peace president is fighting battles his country cannot afford
(2 comments) Military and intelligence spending relentlessly increase as unemployment heads over 10% and the economy bleeds red ink.

Searching for hope in Haiti's ruins
The U.S. could do enormous good for Haiti, which needs a major rescue mission for a desperate people who have failed to govern themselves and have no other hope. Most Haitians, I think, would welcome U.S. humanitarian intervention.

U.S. kicks hornet's nest in Yemen
(1 comments) Just before the Detroit air incident, U.S. warplanes killed 50-100 Yemeni tribesmen fighting the American-backed regime. U.S. special forces, warplanes and killer drones have been active since 2001, assassinating Yemeni militants and anti-government tribal leaders. It was only a matter of time before Yemeni jihadists struck back at the U.S.
